Research on the Self-Sufficiency of Traditional Performing Arts Organizations According to their Mean Perception of Public Support


Objectives: To deduce the characteristics of public support, and investigate the relationship with the self-sufficiency based on the supported organizations and persons. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For this study, a sample of 267 organizations and the persons concerned with experience of receiving support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism was drawn, and a descriptive statistical analysis and a multivariate analysis was performed. The reliability of the assessment tools was calculated to be ≥0.70 with the use of Cronbach’s alpha coefficients, meaning satisfactorily reliable assessment tools. Findings: A hypothesis for investigating significant factors in the self-sufficiency of traditional performing arts organizations according to their mean perception of public support was adopted as it has significant influential elements. From a practical point of view, the study provides an important implication that their mean perception of public support can improve their self-sufficiency, and it can be saw that a higher mean perception score means their higher self-sufficiency. It will contribute to the implementation of follow-up studies on the field. Application/ Improvements: But despite such an implication drawn, the limited value of the study is that only basic matters were assessed with only 267 people and organizations surveyed as a sample; and for a possibility of generalization it is necessary to implement follow up studies of larger scope with a sample of a group of subjects who have similar characters.
